Whenever I say something is funny my dad asks, “Funny peculiar, or funny HaHa?” Life lately has been a little bit funny peculiar. A few days ago I went with my sister to a tasting to plan a Christmas party for work. I did NOT feel old enough. The event planners kept coming up to us and I was at a loss. Sometimes I just don’t feel grown up enough for my life.
It’s my birthday month! Hooray! I love birthdays. Also, October. Bloggers are constantly saying how October is their favorite month, but I feel like it is MY month. I have been thinking about how I am going to turn 24. It isn’t necessarily a huge birthday, but I feel like I should be grown up by now. As if in 20 days I will magically start saying intelligent things when put into large crowds.
Hubby had a business trip to St George last weekend and I went with. I had to be with him at his event and even though he probably didn’t want the help I gave my two cents here and there. It felt so GOOD. After the event we were driving to my parents house and I told him it felt so good to actually speak about intelligent things. I absolutely love my job and am so grateful for it, but sometimes I miss learning and being a part of the process.
Remember how I had that goal of being elegant this year. I don’t think I even know what that means to me anymore. I hate to admit that in my mind I pictured myself about 4 sizes smaller with pretty dresses and manicured nails. I don’t think that should qualify as elegant. I think elegant should be someone who is confident and who has the ability to make other people see the good in themselves.
I say funny peculiar because I feel good about myself, even though I didn’t reach any of the goals I had set for myself for the age of 23. I think my idea of what I want myself to become has changed a lot. And I think that’s a good thing.
In keeping with the theme of this post, here we are apple picking … St George style …
Yes, in St George you pick apples in caves – more on that later!
